Philip Townsend (1940-2016)

THE ROLLING STONES LONDON, 1963. Silver gelatin print, printed later, image size 480 x 483mm, sheet size 605 x 502mm, signed and editioned 1/50 in ink by the photographer in lower margin, with the photographer's blindstamp lower left recto.

On the occasion of the Rolling Stones' 50th Anniversary, Mick Jagger reminisced to the Daily Mirror about this early photoshoot, "This was the first photo session we did, when I was 19. We had a flat in World's End and wandered around the bad end of Chelsea, as it was known then, not far from where I live now. In fact, this picture was taken near the Cheyne Walk Brasserie, where I sometimes go for lunch. It was at low tide, so we're down on the river and the road's up above. I only had that one jacket - corduroy. I can still remember buying it!"


Estimated at £400 - £600
